Kalmar to deliver container handling machines to DP World Logistics Australia

Container handling technology manufacturer Kalmar, part of Cargotec, will deliver 38 new machines to DP World Australia’s recently launched logistics arm, DP World Logistics Australia.
The order includes seven Kalmar reachstackers, and 11 loaded and 20 empty container handlers. So far, 22 units have successfully been delivered to DP World Logistics Australia’s Botany Intermodal terminal, with the remaining equipment to be delivered by September 2017.
The new machines add to DP World Australia’s existing fleet of Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), straddle carriers and terminal tractors and will serve operations in Sydney, Melbourne, Fremantle and DP World Australia’s semi-automated terminal in Brisbane.
The Kalmar reachstackers will be equipped with Kalmar K-Motion transmission technology, which secures uptime and productivity while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Four units will also include overheight legs. All the Kalmar machines will be powered by Volvo IV Final engines to meet emissions standards and will feature the Kalmar SmartFleet system for performance-boosting remote monitoring and reporting.
“Kalmar won a competitive tender to renew, and increase, our fleet of machines in all our facilities around Australia,” said Ron French, National Engineering Manager at DP World Australia. “Our existing relationship gave us leverage to secure the best outcome for DP World Australia, with respect to pricing, service and ongoing support. The K-Motion option was very attractive due to lower fuel consumption and environmental impact.”
Michael Wahab, Director Mobile Equipment at Kalmar, added, “We are happy to continue to serve DP World Logistics Australia with reliable and efficient equipment tailored to their needs. The units are also equipped with environmentally conscious technology, including innovative K-Motion technology to significantly lessen fuel usage and reduce emissions by up to 40 per cent.”
